Emigrating. Welcome, Stranger.
My name is John Higham. The year is 1858 and I am 31 years of age. You see me here in London where I live with my family; my wife Sarah and our sons, William, 9 and Joseph, 6. Thankfully, unlike others at this time, I am in the employment of Messrs. J & E Robinson, working as a builder. Please join me and advise me on whether I should emigrate and how to go about it.
